The Dipset album is still a work in progress and now so is a Dipset movie. Jim Jones spilled the beans on the film on Monday (July 11), when XXLMag.com asked him how the Harlem group’s return project was coming along.
“Currently in motion, we been working . . . it hasn’t been going as fast as we’d like it to go because everybody got so much business that they’re doing aside from where we left it,” Jones said about the current state of the Diplomats album, before taking to the basketball court of a Downtown Manhattan, NY middle school with his “Jones Family” squad as part of MTV2 and Converse’s Band of Ballers event. “But we definitely been locking in. Shout outs to Cam, shout outs to Juelz, shout outs to Freekey Zekey. Everybody’s on board. We actually working on the Diplomat movie . . . I don’t think I was supposed to say that.”
But he did. So, how would a Dipset movie play out? “Our success and road to success has been filled with a lot of ups and downs,” Jones explained. “It’s kind of like an action flick if you Google us and read all the news clippings and everything that’s been going on while we been on TV. It should be a good movie.”
Jones didn’t reveal any further details on the film and there is currently no release date on a new Dipset album. –Mark Lelinwalla
